Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) evolved over the past few years from a tactical “nuisance” threat to a strategic problem challenging the tactics, strategies and war-fighting capabilities of established armies worldwide. The result should be a revaluation and major changes to military doctrines world wide, impacting outlooks, makeup and budgets for decades to come.
This world-changing trend is described, examined and analyzed in detail in this report:
The report arrives at some surprising conclusions about the ways the IED threat will influence the evolution of militaries in general and counter IED technologies in particular. The report examines existing and evolving strategies and technologies and highlights the advantages and disadvantages of adopting each technology.
Among others, the new research report focuses on the following areas:
